what the obama campaipresidency looks li romney's presidentially will look like. i agree with you, we're getting down to the 11th hour and there's one final debate and i really hope that romney takes this time to lay it out word for word in a simple and accessible way because this is just too complicated for people. >> when you think of the fact that the economy is not -- has not recovered at the rate we'd like, as quickly as we'd like, and that was going to be romney's issue and according to the polls, he and the president is tied here, what can he do, megan, as a republican? if he was watching, what could he do on wednesday night that could give him the edge back on the economy? that was going to be his issue. >> there's a lot of ammo out there right now. if i were governor romney i would start talking about libya, the terrorist attack that jay carney will say but the president will not say has happened. the deficit is over 16%. that's the types of things i would start doing and on their brass tax facts that they can be using and we're making it vague and all of the things that we h

presidential! >> the american people overwhelmingly thought mitt romney won the debate. >> steve: we got a poll. let's look. >> the poll says what? 67% thought mitt romney won two-thirds. >> but the lament is becoming, we didn't know he was going to be likeable or warm. we didn't know that's going to be compassionate. we didn't know that he was going to look trustworthy. we didn't know he had all these policies before. this is all new to us. we weren't prepared for this. what are we going to do? we're going to come out and attack him. he talked about it this morning. we're going to see, i believe, the hugest campaign of character assassination in american history that's going to go forward. i also predict it's going to backfire because the people that i spoke to yesterday, and i asked a lot of people and it's not scientific and especially some women, including my wife who is very smart. she said, you know, he's got a lot of class. this guy has a lot of class. mitt romney. and that came through. he was reasonable. he was calm. now we have the deconstruction. we have liberals heads being blown of
of dollars worth of ads depicting him as a corporate pirate not true and he was very presidential. now, unfortunately for the democrats, they find she was in a ditch and rather than painting mr. romney as an extremist which they have done in the past, what they're doing is calling him a big fat liar. here is the director of communications for the dnc, brad woodhouse. >> there has been plenty of people pointed out what a liar mitt romney is and was last night. if he was talking, he was -- testifies speaking last night, he was lying. mitt romney had a good night, but, you know, even a blind squirrel gets a nut every now and then. >> brian: 09 minutes -- 90 minutes? that's like if off lucky question, that would be an apt analogy. but we don't even know any blind squirrels. >> gretchen: how will romney go on the response mode to these attacks? he did so last night on the sean hannity program. here he is reacting to the president's damage control yesterday. >> i have watched some of the attacks that have come my way. you just shake your head. i do recall that the president's acceptance spee
-or-break moment. that is dangerous for him. you see, one of the biggest mistakes mitt romney could make is to come out swinging and say something rash that makes him look ridiculous like it did after the libya crisis. he has to be careful to make sure he still looks presidential and doesn't look like some sort of barracuda nipping at obama's heels. there's a delicate balance here, and if mitt romney and his advisers are treating this as the make-or-break moment, that could invite mistakes in my opinion. >> steve, what does camp romney need to be doing in terms of the debate next wednesday? >> well, this idea fact-checking obama is a bad idea. i think continues to make a case that the majority of the american people have demonstrated two years ago they agree with, you've conquered that hill. romney needs to look like a credible, transparent, sincere leader with a plan, and a plan that is specific and simple to understand and how benchmarks like you give investors at bain capital. he wouldn't walk into a room and say, hey, give me your money to buy this company. we'll make it all work here in the bl
as the great debater and so on. so i actually think romney has a good chance of sort of getting over the sort of is he presidential hump. i agree with charles, though, he has to get a bit further and deliver a little more on substance than he did during the republican convention. and the republican convention was all about mitt romney, you know, likeable human being. i think talking about likability now sort of misses the point. for romney, it's all about saying obama has failed, here's some substance i can offer as an alternative, you don't necessarily have to love me to want to put me in charge of a country that's frankly in a bit of a mess still. >> the strange thing about mitt romney, i have interviewed him three times now and he is quite likeable when you meet him privately. there's definitely two sides. i was struck by what one of his sons told me at the convention, when i interviewed all the boys. he said he has struggled to get out of ceo mode in public. for so long he ran a business, a company, and when you do that, there isn't much room for laughter and being a nice guy. it's all ab
kerry, i was told by two eye witnesses was actually tougher inside than mitt romney was with barack obama. >> woodruff: so that's not it. >> no, i don't think that-- i do think what we concluded before, at least i heard several wise people say, presidential debates don't matter. this one mattered. the republicans were heading for the life boats before wednesday. i mean there was a sense of inevitability that romney was slipping, that he was going to lose. and that was totally turned around by what happened. he wiped the slate clean of what had been a bad, bad month of stumbles and gaffes and everything else. and the sense that the president was the inevitable winner i think was pierced. i don't think it was broken but i think it was pierced. and i think most of all, i come back to what brice harlow one of washington's great wisemen said, advisor and consullate to both president eisenhower, every republican president from eisenhower to reagan told me once about the bubble of the white house. he said it's the terrible thing. it's the office itself that-- presidents don't get candidate

as the presidential debates approach, a spokesperson starts down playing how his candidate will do, hoping that reports will be that barack obama or mitt romney did better than expected. it has nothing to do with who is really scoring more points and it doesn't fool anyone. we have all seen this kind of public relations stunt before no one is buying it. both candidates are smart and articulate, and skilled at this kind of debate, both campaigns and their candidates should be focusing on the serious questions that need to be answered. here are a few, for mitt romney governor you have attacked the individual mandate requirement in the president's health care plan, but approved it for massachusetts, and you, newt gingrich, and the heritage foundation argued it was the key to sound health care economics until barack obama adopted explain why the individual mandate is no longer essential to health care economics. second question, put aside the language about foreign policy and the rhetoric about not apologizing, name who things you would do differently about iran and ru

-up. these are states like north dakota. i think there is an impact. i think it's at the presidential level and -- >> why is this comment sticking out more than nir othany other? i think it's sticking out because the obama campaign has worked to make sure what kind of economy romney believes in, how he made his money, what his model was, how he's hurt a bunch of workers and has never done anything for the middle class. the timing of it matched up with the way the campaign has put him out in front of the country. you couldn't write a better script for the obama team. >> you'd be hard pressed. i think there's a reason for it. when a candidate fits his stereotype, then all of the efforts he makes to undo it just don't work. and then i think there is a second component and that is that he selected as his running mate paul ryan. paul ryan, someone who is passionate about deconstructing comments of the 47%. >> has romney's campaign done a good job of responding to the criticism? >> he first comes out and says i stand by it basically. number one, that's bad. but then as he's tried to move away fro
